ASK Proxima C420 shuts down after 30 seconds. No indication of overheating or lamp problem.

Might be a problem with the video input. Try a different cable. If HDMI, you will need a really good cable for HDTV or 3D, and they are very expensive. My 12 foot cable cost $180.

JVC DLA-RS1U Projector turns off

I have a similar problem. JVC Project (DLA-RS1) shuts off after about 30 min to 1 hour of use. Everything turns off - bulb, fan, even the little light on the projector near the buttons. After 10-15 min the red light comes back on and you can start the projector.

I have seen this happen when I had installed a knock-off bulb. I believe the bulb runs a little hotter and the projector over heats. Now I am seeing it happen even with a JVC bulb.

I am in the process of taking the cover off the projector to see if anything is blocking the air flow (like a piece of broken bulb, which did break a while back). If a problem doesn't show up there I am going to check the fan to see if it is turning at full speed (maybe replace with a beefier fan?).

Does anyone have instruction on dis-assembly?

Dell 3200MP projector. Lamp warning light comes on after approx 30 minutes of use and the lamp turns off. Bulb is new. I am not sure what the warning light is indicating.

The ambient temperature in the room is to high.
Try lowering the room temperature. If that doesn't work
get a small fan and place it near the projector to provide
extra cooling. The projector is running border line on
high temperature and just needs a little extra cooling.

Viewsonic Projector PJ506D not working

proable solution the cooling fan is giving problems. the whistling sound most likely is fan rubbing on a wire??? The unit gets over heated and turns off for protection. Good luck

Projector shuts off within 30 seconds of power on

is the led lit on the top of the projector? what colors?

green is ok.

red flashing in sequence:
2 times- lamp hours exceed 200 hrs. replace lamp.
3 times- lamp failure. replace lamp.
4 times- fans not working. remove obstruction or replace fan.
5 times- temp too high. clean thoroughly.
solid red- undiagnosed error by projector. possible power supply or ballast.

also make sure the lamp door switch is working.

The projector switching off after 30 seconds

check the following :
1.does the lamp glow u get the connected image
3.if yes does the screen show temperature or overheat
4.if yes then one of the cooling fans do not work properly & hence the unit turns to standby & goes into protection
if no 1 does not happen, then check the lamp physically,it should not show melted or breakage.
if the lamp seems ok, then the ballast is defective!
